About This Item

Fine border of cherubs riding dragons, nudes, men in armour, foliage, columns etc. signed Urs Graf (U.G.) and with date 1516. Folio bevelled wooden covers with wide rolled pigskin spine handsomely blind stamped with rampant lions in lozenges between parallel strands of vines & flowers. TP is printed in red & black. Spines with three raised bands and diamond shaped alternating with stylized flower tools (lacks clasps/some worm holes to wood and vellum) Fore-edge lettered Simon de Cassea (14)+469 leaves + colophon with large printer's mark for Alantsee of 2 griffons suporting a shield with cipher ALT and supporting an oak tree above (total fatness of book just under 11cm) TP with three ownerships (2 on top margin one with a single line through it the 3rd to side of text) Fore-edge of TP slightly rough & tanned. Some large foliated initial capitals and fine double column typography of this near incunabulum. Some worm holes usually isolated not affecting integrity of the paper nor readability of the print as they are mostly confined to the margins, mainly at the beginning & end of the book. There are a few old scholarly comments or marginal marks (affects about 6 or 7 pages) Two clean marginal tears without loss and one corner lost but affecting less than half the width of the margin at the corner (STC302 Adam C857 collations a-HH6+JJ8). A duplicate copy from the Royal Bavarian Court Library (old provenance/shelf mark on pastedown) and a really beautiful copy.
